The Best Way to Set Season Goals in Madden 21 Coach
There are many people Setting your Season Goal is more important than you may think. If you do it wrong you could get fired and lose your coach or your team. This is why some of you are here right now. It is hard to not be greedy when it comes to how you set the XP settings. The key takeaway from this topic is to not lose all of what you worked for just 1750 to 2500 XP. Because that can happen if you play with fire, then the Madden Gods will come down and crap in your disk slot.
How you set your Season Goal should depend on what kind of style your franchise is. Are you in a simulation league or a playing league? Before we answer that question we very rarely recommend choosing “Make it to the Super Bowl”. The risk is too great for so many, only a few can pull it off year after year.
We will talk about Simulation leagues first then we will talk user-play leagues.
Simulation – If you are in a simulation league then it might be wiser to lower your standards. If you have a key player injured for the season such as your 90 overall QB you may struggle to reach your mark and get fired. When your team is at its peak because you watched all of our tips videos we recommend you stay around the “7 wins” objective and not push much higher than that. The “7 wins” goal is safe and still gets you 1250 XP with a “Moderate” chance at getting fired.
If you get fired over “Making the Playoffs/Super Bowl” which is only 1000 XP or more you are a goofball. There are times where your team is so stacked that you make the playoffs every year for almost 10 years straight Like in our Bears Realistic Rebuild. At that time you can set it to “Make the Playoffs” however, you need to be sure.
Simulation Leagues – When you are just starting out you may even want to go below “7 wins”. Especially if your team is a piping hot pile of buttholes. Take it slow with your team and get more confident in your team before you start risking the chance of getting fired. We have heard too many times that someone got fired all because they set their season goal too high and then got fired. The highest goal you should ever set in a simulation league should be “Make the Playoffs”. I
If it is your last season then you can set it to whatever you want because it won’t matter, but risking getting fired over the little amount of XP that you get is just silly. Play it safe and know what your team can do before you start risking the biscuit for no damn reason.
User Play Leagues – When you are in a User Play League, meaning that play every game instead of simulating, you have more control in your ability to set your season goals. It is quite simple, if you are good and always make it to the super bowl then it won’t matter because you will likely always reach your goals. If you got weak skills then it is obviously not wise to set your season goal too high. It is better, to be honest with yourself about your skill level or the CPU will be honest for you by firing you.
If you lack enough skills to set a high season goal just stick with the “7 wins goal”. That is not too hard to obtain and it still gives you a fair amount of XP. The bottom line is this, getting the small amount of XP that it gives you is not enough of a reward to risk getting fired and losing all of your progression with your team. Play it safe and conservative and play the long game instead of the “get rich quick” kind of game. Because they tend to not work for most gamers or even people in real life.
